AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) October 30, 2018
Pushnami, the top A.I powered cross-channel messaging platform, specializing in opt-in browser-based push notifications, has certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks for the transfer of personal information in the EU or Switzerland to the U.S. These frameworks have been developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, respectively. This voluntary program helps companies comply with relevant U.S. and European Union privacy rules and provides a legal mechanism for Pushnami to transfer personal data from the EU or Switzerland to the U.S.
As both data and the users of data travel more widely across the globe, it's become clear that compliance programs are needed to ensure that the needs of consumers, companies, and governments are all respected in regard to data privacy and security. In this spirit, the Privacy Shield program requires its participants to abide by seven principles, all of which were a natural fit for Pushnami.
Members must provide proper notice of usage of their personal data to users; they must provide users with a choice on how their data is shared; they must supervise third parties to ensure data is used only for chosen purposes; data must be kept secure; only information that is relevant to the stated purpose of the company can be collected and shared; customers must be able to access and correct data as needed; and clear mechanisms for recourse must be in place. Pushnami's opt-in browser-based technology is built to put the needs of users first and foremost and to help facilitate the company’s compliance with these Privacy Shield principles.
Pushnami CEO Emerson Smith stated, "Pushnami becoming certified with Privacy Shield was the result of a large effort over the last year to validate that we are in compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles. As website traffic continues to expand globally, we felt it was important that we remained a leader in this area to protect our clients and their subscribers."
